The Career Service (also known as C.OR. Centro ORientamento) offers several online tools to find internship and placement opportunities in Italy and abroad for the University of Pavia new graduates (up to 12 months since graduation).

Most of the online tools and all the individual services are offered only in Italian.  



Tutoring is the service that supports students during their academic life, from the moment they enter the university until the threshold of graduation.

If you want to become a tutor you will collaborate to refine the available resources and help students to face the possible difficulties during different phases of their training process.

Your task will be to create opportunities for integration of traditional courses with appropriate spaces for those who need more personalized and participatory teaching moments.

Tutors will help students throughout their course of study, with the activities being divided into three distinct types:

  • Informative: Providing information on schedules, programmes, levels of study, and other practical topics
  • Cognitive: Giving seminars on selected topics, providing interactive education for small groups (10-20 students), assisting with new and difficult material, advising on study methods and practice exams
  • Psychological: Responding to educational problems, conducting individual and group counselling

Applications are open twice a year: once in September and once in May. Please note that you cannot act as a tutor in the same academic year as having a part-time job with the University.

Pay: About €14/hour

A monthly contribution of € 280.00 is provided as expense reimbursement.
